i'm glad you came...

I love the song by Wanted - Glad You Came... and knew that the lyrics would go perfect with this doodle. 

The sun/moon/star combo is a favorite of mine - I have sunbursts and sun/moon decorations all around my house and outside around the yard and deck. 

This drawing/doodle is inspired by a piece of art that was on an envelope and card sent to me by my friend Melissa McGee.  The artist was Laurel Burch (at least the card was, I'm assuming the envie art was hers too!)

Congratulations winners!

That's right, I said "WINNERS"... It was so much fun pulling one random name, that I decided to let hb pull one also...  so we have two winners!

Congratulations to Carol B, and Jane Fernandez!

Found your blog through a Google search of doodling, so glad I did. The class sounds fab!

Carol B

Will you have a sexy live male model as part of your class? I think you should....I think all of Sandi's classes should come with a sexy male model for us to 'doodle'......but I want to win a place either way :)

So come on... comment already!!!!

class info!

a true mix...

Gotta love mixed-media.  Let's see... what did I use on this canvas... hmmmm... how about everything in my arsenal?

Paint, spray ink, stain, markers, paper, fabric doily, stamps, embossing powder, charms, crackle paint, stencils...

I <3 her.  I <3 her so much I may keep her.  When completed, she will have the following quote written all around the sides of the canvas:  "she went out on a limb, had it break off behind her, and realized she could fly". 

'new' old studio...

thursday night hb came in to my studio and said "I think you need more space in here for all your stuff." 

Ya think? LOL  I'm guessing the tilting piles of 'stuff' were getting to him.  Every horizontal (and some vertical) space was FILLED. 

Hey.  Artists need a lot of STUFF. 

That was Thursday night.  Two days later I have a new area, compliments of a very talented hubby that can whip together something out of scrap wood from the crawl space, making a piece of furniture that has changed my studio space for the better. 

Here is the "BEFORE" of the top of my dresser.  This was actually taken over about a year ago - and trust me - things were ADDED to it.  The entire mirror was covered, and there wasn't an inch of space on top of the dresser.  

And now here's the 'in progress'.  I say 'in progress' because there's still lots to be added - I have all kinds of hooks to put on the side to hold hanging supplies, and the Sun/Moon hanger that is stuck on the shelf on the side will be hung ON the side of the upright.  The wire shelves will go bye-bye.  On the right side I will hang my stencils. 

This also opened up a ton of space on my craft table... so now I think I need to go buy more supplies.  What do you think?  LOL
